Sydney, Jan 10: Australia were 312/6 at tea on the fourth day of the third Test against India, extending their overall lead to 406 runs on Sunday.
Play was halted for a few minutes on the fourth day after the visiting players complained of abuse from the crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground here on Sunday.
It was a day after a drunk spectator at the SCG allegedly directed racial abuse at Indian players Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj. The BCCI has lodged a complaint with the ICC.
During the second session of the fourth day on Sunday, India players huddled in the centre after Siraj, standing at the square leg boundary, complained of abuse after being hit for two consecutive sixes by Cameron Green in his over.
However, play resumed after some spectators are asked to leave following complaints of abuse.
Six people were removed from the stands after Mohammed Siraj alerted the umpires and his team-mates to further abuse from the crowd following day three's allegations of racial abuse directed at India players.
Tim Paine was batting on 39, while all-rounder Cameron Green was dismissed just before the break at 84.
India 1st Innings: 244 all out
Australia: 338 and 312/6 in 87 overs
